Christmas is a week from now and wow, it sure sneaks up on you quickly. Is it me or do you notice how quickly 2013 is going by? When I had a full-time office job, the year never passed this quickly. Now that I’m a homemaker/blogger, the days go by in a blink of an eye. Anyway, I hope everyone has gotten their Christmas shopping done.
Dark chocolate peanut butter and holiday chip brownie bites. Whew, it’s a mouthful to say! These cute little brownie bites are so dense, chocolatey and delicious. Milk is a requirement when eating these little gems. When Chris and I sampled these, we couldn’t stop eating them. We had to restrain ourselves from eating the entire batch. Haha! If you love dark chocolate AND peanut butter, you’ll love these babies. Happy Wednesday!
- 2 cups of dark chocolate peanut butter (I used Peanut Butter & Co. brand)
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups of all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 3/4 cup of holiday chips + extra to sprinkle on top (I used Nestle Tollhouse brand)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease or line baking cups in the muffin pan (I used 2 12-cup muffin pan and a 6-cup muffin pan).
Using a stand or electric mixer (or mix by hand) mix together peanut butter, eggs and vanilla extract until smooth. Then add flour and salt and mix until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Fold in holiday chips.
Using a 1-1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop, spoon batter into each baking cup (about 1/3 full). Sprinkle extra holiday chips on top. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the tester/toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool slightly in the pan before transferring them to the cooling rack.

These sound amazing! And I agree – the year goes SO much quicker now that i work from home/am a SAHM, than it did when I worked in an office. Especially with the arrival of our baby this year, 2013 went by in the blink of an eye!
These look SO incredible, Anne! Plus the recipe sounds so easy — I love it. I’m definitely pinning. I agree, time goes by so fast, especially when I’m home doing my blogging, errands, etc. Have a great day!

I can’t believe I’ve never thought to do a peanut butter chocolate cookie! Peanut butter + chocolate is my favorite combination. Can’t wait to try yours. Thanks!
I’ve never seen chocolate peanut butter, but is sounds amazing! Where can you buy it?
I think this is the brand Anne used.
I bought mine at Target. You can also find them at Walmart, Cost Plus World Market or Whole Foods.
Thanks! I’m definitely going to pick some up!
I would LOVE to make these – they look sooo delicious! I’ve never seen dark chocolate peanut butter – I’ll have to look for it. And I love how festive these cookies look with the ‘holiday chips’!!
When I think of the holidays visions of log cabins, snow, tall trees, colorful lights and holiday music come to mind. It’s kind of an elegant rustic theme going on in my head. These brownie bites fit that theme perfectly. I think mint chips would be great in these too!
Well I definitely love dark chocolate and peanut butter, so I am sure that I would love these little bites too!
Haha finish my Christmas shopping? Good one… I’m not even close yet. And while on the subject of not finishing things… I haven’t even started my holiday cookie baking yet!!! I’m so behind. This weekend will be spent in the kitchen for sure! These brownie bites look so decadently delicious! Definitely pinning them so I remember to make ’em!
Those brownie bites are so beautiful with holiday chips!
I definitely do love dark chocolate and peanut butter! These sound so good Anne! I thankfully have finished my shopping but have absolutely nothing wrapped. Eeek! And way too many things to get done! haha
WOW!! dark chocolate and peanut butter? Sounds amazing! I wont be able to stop that’s for sure.
These look incredible!
I love that these brownie bites are so chocolaty, looks delicious! I could eat a few!
These are so festive looking and just looking at how plump they are, I can picture the dense yet soft texture! Plus chocolate and PB? You’ve got everyone’s favorite combo. I want some…can you tell?! : )
My dear, I have the same impression about time passing by too quickly. Can’t believe 2013 is about to end! I regret I haven’t baked enough this year 🙂 These bites are super delicious treats!
They look so festive and decadent! YUM!
Every year time passes more quickly, doesn’t it? It can possibly be December yet – what happened to July? 😉 But I’m seeing loads of red and green decorations, so that’s proof enough December is here. These look wonderful – really nice recipe. Thanks.
Nice, Anne – chocolatey and so festive. Best – Shanna
Did you say DOUBLE chocolate? Because you know I can never pass up chocolate. And with the peanut butter these look amazing!
It’s hard to believe Christmas is just around the corner! I’m loving these brownie bites and those holiday chips on top – perfection! Pinned!
Thanks so much Trish! And for the pin too. 🙂
Anne, no wonder you and Chris had trouble stopping eating these delightful and festive cookies…they look scrumptious! I am in total denial that Christmas is one week away already. In fact, I shall go by the Gregorian calendar and celebrate thru January 7th…just to get back that week we lost when Thanksgiving was so late this year. How about THAT? LOL! Thanks for sharing, girl. Pinning!
Brilliant! Go Gregorian.
You and I both Stacy. I’m in complete denial! I’m still thinking it’s 3 weeks away. LOL! Thanks so much for the pin girl, and happy holidays! xo 🙂
These look delish! Happy Holidays!

That is such a festive batch of cookies! And with dark chocolate, I’d like to have a few now please! 😀
They look so Christmassy (not to mention totally delicious)!
Time definitely IS flying by in an unruly way!! I’m loving the sound of these tasty holiday bites though!
Chocolate peanut better, I have to try that. Your brownie bites look so happy! 🙂 ela
So festive and yummy! Beautiful Anne!
Oh my gosh these look incredible! And I love the colors you have used. Pinned!
Wow, these look delicious! Festive and perfect for the holidays…and what a fun use of the peanut butter, too!
Oh, now these I wouldn’t be able to keep my paws off of! What a wonderful holiday treat!
These are the kind of cookies I want on the holiday buffet table.
Wonderful recipe, Anne, and the cookies look so festive! I bought that brand of chocolate peanut butter a few years ago from the company in NYC. I gave it away as Christmas gifts and I was very popular. I’ve since seen that it’s made its way to our stores but I’ve a question. This stuff is seriously good. How ever did you keep from eating it so that you could use it in your cookie recipe? 🙂
Haha, it was hard but I managed not to eat straight from the jar. Thanks for stopping by John! 🙂
The cookies look so pretty and festive. I can’t get my eyes off them!
Beautifully festive cookies! My favorite combination 🙂 a few of these and I’m sure time will slow down…at least for a few moments.
Hi Anne, not sure how I missed these before so I’m glad you linked them up to our Marvelous Monday party! These are perfect for the holiday! Pinning.
All I can say is WOW. I would be in so much trouble if I walked into my kitchen and found these!! Beautfiully done!
You are definitely making me want to get some dark chocolate peanut butter! These brownie bites look amazing!
I wouldn’t be able to resist these either Anne! They look so soft, rich and chocolaty! Like they would just melt in your mouth.
